    Hi Ron,

    >Flying Training Manual

    That's fantastic! :)

    I had known the the RAF had published some kind of general material on flying as it's mentioned in most (all?) Pilot's Notes*, but that they had such comprehensive material starting with the very basics was new to me!

    Outstanding, thanks a lot!

    Regards,

    Henning (HoHun)

    * You might have seen this: "These notes are complementary to A.P.2095 Pilot's Notes General and assume a thorough knowledge of its contents. All Pilots should be in possession of a copy of A.P. 2095 (see A.M.O. A718/48)"

    Many thanks Ron

    This is great. The year 1937 the manual published coincided with RAF's huge expansion program caught up.

    It is quite usable even in today's pilot training, but a little too complicated.
